ELECTRONIC AIRBAG SYSTEM

 
 
 
 

A brand new technology for maximum protection on the road.

A true revolution in protection and detection.

A MULTI-SENSOR TECHNOLOGY

How does it work?

Helite’s electronic airbag technology contains 2 sensors:

 

A sensor integrated into the vest (CDU): it follows the motion of the motorcyclist in context.

 

A sensor to be placed on the motorcycle fork (SDU): it detects impacts on the motorcycle.

 

The two sensors are paired and analyze the situation. Once a fall or accident is detected the vest automatically inflates before ground impact.

Analyzes the motorcyclist’s motion in real time.

Long lifespan (1 week)

Detects impacts on the motorcycle

Is autonomous: no battery charge

 
 
 
 

1 TECHNOLOGY - 2 CHOICES OF PROTECTION

 
Page autonome_7 (3).png

 

1. THE VEST & THE FORK SENSOR

 

Possible detection cases:

 

Slipping, loss of grip, loss of control: the CDU sensor detects the fall and triggers the airbag system depending on the situation.

 

Collision with a vehicle or obstacle: the fork sensor detects the impact and sends a signal to the CDU vest sensor which analyzes the situation and activates the airbag if necessary

 

Advantages:

Detection time divided by 2

Protection at standstill and low speed

2. THE VEST ONLY:

Perfect for race track

 

For track use, the "fork sensor" is less essential: only a few

accidents occur at low speed and collision with a vehicle or

an obstacle are rare. 

 

Possible detection cases:

 

Slipping, loss of grip, loss of control: the CDU sensor analyzes the situation, detects the fall and triggers the airbag system if necessary.

TESTS

 

Page autonome-11 (3).png

We ensure you a detection time between 31 and 60 ms
at a speed of 35 km/h (that covers 85% of accidents).

We performed tests in collaboration with UTAC, the French technical union for Automobile, Motorcycle and Cycle. Thanks to these tests we validated our detection time.

Test during a frontal impact against a stationary vehicle:

- Detection time of the motorcycle fork: 31 ms

- Detection time of the CDU sensor situated in the airbag vest: 62ms

- Detection time of the wirless airbag from a competitor: 95 ms

THE AIRBAG PROTECTION

This is and remains our PRIORITY

 

The airbag protection remains the same and hence ensures an optimal protection under all circumstances: while riding, at standstill and low speed (this is also the case for our mechanical airbag system).
